Meet the Move U Crew

The Move U Crew provides support and services to help our campus community to move more and reduce sedentary or stationary behaviors. They do this through leading guided wellbeing walks, coordinating physical activity challenges and implementing movement breaks in classrooms and meetings.


Hi! My name is Natalie and this is my first year as a Student Leader with Move U Crew, however I have already worked at the UBCO gym for a year previously. I am in my third academic year, but since I have changed my degree a few times I am still completing first year in Biochemistry. I am passionate about making physical activity fun and doable for everyone regardless of where you are in your fitness journey, as well as educating others on the health benefits of reducing sedentary behaviour. I love going for walks, hikes, and bike rides to explore the beautiful Okanagan Valley – especially if it involves Geocaching!



Hi! My name is Pree. I am a third year Manufacturing Engineering student and this is my second year working with the Move U Crew as a Move U Crew member. I’m passionate about helping students on campus incorporate physical movement through fun games and activities to help them maintain an active lifestyle. I love to go on hikes and the Okanagan has been gifting me with some of the best hiking spots throughout the year. Apart from that, I enjoy playing football (soccer), as well as being up to date with the transfer market.
